Cleared: The Losers
This movie wasn't as bad as Max Payne, but sadly, that's about all to recommend it. It swung back and forth between forced attempts at humor, pointless brutality, and overlong "character development" scenes that really didn't develop the characters at all. It felt extremely unpolished and worst of all, wasn't any fun. I could see some places where the characters had potential to be really interesting, but it wasn't realized. The action scenes were too few and not very exciting, and the film wasn't even resolved at the end, probably to set up a sequel. Oh, and special mention to the fact that the DVD has over ten minutes of unskippable ads. I wouldn't recommend this one. In fact, I'd go so far as to say the real losers are the people who made this.
